Giancarlo Stanton hits 42nd home run as Miami Marlins defeat Colorado Rockies

MIAMI FL- AUGUST 13 Giancarlo Stanton #27 of the Miami Marlins hits his 42nd homerun in the third inning during the game between the Miami Marlins and the Colorado Rockies at Marlins Park

The Rockies have an incredibly risky lineup that features major-league RBIs leader Nolan Arenado, All-Star leadoff batter Charlie Blackmon, who went 4-for-5 with two steals and two runs scored on Saturday; Mark Reynolds, who has 23 homers; Gerardo Parra, who is hitting.343; Trevor Story, who has 15 homers; two-time All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy; and 2016 NL batting champ D.J. LeMahieu. Thankfully for the Rockies, and fantasy owners alike, he was able to avoid any significant injury. Here's the latest Rockies vs. Marlins recap including top performers, game stats, a standings update, and what's up next for these two Major League Baseball teams. Stanton has hit seven home runs in his last eight games to reach the 40-home run plateau for the first time in his eight-year career.

Miami opened the scoring with two runs in the second.

"Any time you get hit up there, and we saw it spring training with Ian (Desmond)". It was the 250th homer of Stanton's career and came in his 941st game. Manager Don Mattingly said he had limited options in the bullpen because of a recent heavy workload, but four relievers combined for five shutout innings.

It is also worth noting that Arenado finished the outing 0-for-2 in addition to the hit-by-pitch.

Worley delivered another strong start in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals, allowing one run on six hits over his six innings.

Stanton is one homer short of the Marlins' season franchise record set by Gary Sheffield in 1996. Carlos Gonzalez had two RBI's in the game, while Gerardo Parra added the other on his two-hit day. He connected on a 97.6-mph fastball by German Marquez with the count full. Already appearing in 114 games in 2017, Arenado is now batting.313 with 26 home runs and 100 RBI to accompany his.361 on-base percentage.

"I had him for a few years, and nobody hits the ball harder than he does", Redmond said. Former Marlins manager and Rockies bench coach Mike Redmond managed Saturday's game for Colorado.

The rest of the Rockies' rotation vs. the Braves will feature right-hander Jon Gray on Wednesday and rookie right-hander Jeff Hoffman on Thursday.

In St. Louis, Paul DeJong clubbed two doubles and drove in three runs as the Cardinals won their season-high seventh straight game.
